    Will definitely return! ”

    Backpackers was in a great location, very close to waterfront. Safe enough to walk along street at night to restaurants and shops nearby. Stayed in an en-suite double room, was clean and a good size. Only issue was we couldn’t close bathroom window completely. Staff were all amazing, super friendly and welcoming. Will definitely return here on my next trip to Cape Town!

    Nice place, great staff”

    The hostel is nice, my single room was clean and everything was in order. Kitchen, communal space, inside and outside, and showers/toilets were all good. The staff is great, ready to help with all your requests and to answer your questions. The location is not perfect, its a tad away from most of the touristy spots but nothing you cant handle on foot, with a (taxi)bus or uber. Its a bit sketchy at night qnd you are advised to not walk alone at night. When I was there, some construction was going on next door, but that doesnt coincide with a good nights rest unless you only sleep during the day.

    Sociable hostel in nice location”

    A very clean and well-kept hostel with great staff. Double room was much better than expected for a hostel. The location, Green Point, is close to the V and A and lots of restaurants but you will still need to Uber to the centre. Recommended.

    I had a lovely stay. The revamped kitchen is a pleasure and the overall vibe was good. I will definitely recommend the Sunflower Stop to friends and travellers. Management should take another look at cleanliness under and behind the obvious places.

    pick-up service from airport demanded to pay”

    new & clean

    Hotel staffs there had never fixed our safety box and light stand even though we have asked. They don't manage their stuff like hair dryer.when I asked to borrow it, they just answered they had it but now they don't know where is it. They have pick-up service at airport but they never told it cost. Then I was asked to pay $22 for shuttle bus driver when I arrived at the hotel. It supposed to be free from there information and If I knew that, I wanted to use public bas from airport not expensive shuttle one.

    We were surprised to see how beautiful and spacious our room was. Great kitchen, it's nice that they have a PC corner as some people don't bring their laptops/tablets. But most of all Customer Service! We accidentally donated our laundry to charity and the staff got our things back ASAP; cleaned and folded! Thanks so much!

    This place was a good value place well located in Cape Town. Staff were very friendly and provided tips on where to go and things to see and do. It's a backpacker place, so don't expect luxury, but it is perfectly adequate and clean. Use the safe.

    Close proximity to Waterfront

    Room was very clean, and the staff was helpful. The shower was a little cranky though, causing it to be hot and cold alternatively sometimes, which was a problem for the cold winter.
